Filling job openings in Wyoming could get easier as lawmakers in Washington push for hands on training. In Laramie County, career and technical education is vital to economic success.
Preparing for the future is a staple of Jill Koslosky’s program at Laramie Community College. As the Dean of Business, Agriculture and Technical Studies, Koslosky’s students aren’t staring at power point slides all day.
She says with career and technical education programs, they’re thrown in the middle of what could be a trade they stick to for years.
"There's just so many ways to build your skills and your experience before you work out there in these careers," says Kolosky.
Senator Mike Enzi is in favor, saying kids in Wyoming should get a great education that helps them remain in the state.
The bill is now up for a final floor vote in the Senate.
